CASTI E-Learning Series - By Using ASTM Standards©


    Price: $125.00


    This training program is designed to help you:

    • write better steel specifications and purchase orders;
    • perform better QC checks on steel products before, during, and after product delivery;
    • become more competent at accepting/rejecting steel products;
    • become more competent at reviewing steel product material test reports; and
    • better apply ASTM steel standards by understanding the basic steelmaking practices used within them.

    Learning Outcomes

    The following learning outcomes will be achieved upon completing this eLearning course.

    • Identify the steelmaking processes that use the basic oxygen furnace and electric arc furnace, as applied in ASTM steel standards
    • Distinguish between heat and a lot of steel, and also between heat analysis and product analysis by applying ASTM steel standards
    • Distinguish between steelmaking by the ingot and continuous strand casting processes, as applied in ASTM Steel Standards
    • Demonstrate the ability to identify the steel refining practices of making rimmed steel and killed steel by applying ASTM steel Standards
    • Demonstrate the ability to identify refinement by ladle metallurgy furnace practice by applying ASTM steel specifications requirements
